Fundraising for Friends

Wow, this picture is bigger than I thought it would be.

So, as most of you know, I'm walking in the Breast Cancer 3-Day in about sx weeks. So far, I've raised over four thousand dollars, which will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the National Philanthropic Breast Cancer Trust. I'm golden. I don't need to raise any more money.
But, some of my teammates do. See, the thing about the 3-Day is that every walker is required to raise a minimum of $2200 - and if you don't raise that much, you have to pay the difference. That seems a little shady to me - you'd think that someone who did the best they could with fundraising but could only get up to $1700 shouldn't have to fork over five hundred bucks of their own.
I know I'm preaching to the choir, since almost all of my faithful readers have donated money to me and this amazing cause (thanks again!), but if you haven't, please consider donating to another member of my team, the Bodacious Tatas. There are a few ladies who haven't even cracked the $1000 mark, and this walk is coming up fast. If you have breasts, love breasts, or like to poke breasts because they're so silly, then donate!

donating money to a really good cause - A+

i did this walk from baltimore to dc-fyi, i was short about $500 and while in the registration line two ladies handed me checks for a combo of that amount because they had met their quotas. so, if you collect more you can filter those over to your teammates, or hopefully, get near some nice people in line!!! the food was great, camping was hilarious, make sure to take a hot shower on the trucks, it sucks when it rains. good luck.
